This is the first part of the Kirkstone Pass route. Kirkstone Pass is a mountain pass at an elevation of 1,489 feet (454 m) above the sea level, located in the English Lake District, in the county of Cumbria.

The road to the pass is asphalted. It’s called A592 and is the Lake District's highest pass that is open to motor traffic. The road is very steep and narrow, with a gradient of 1 in 4. This steep twisty road connects Ambleside in the Rothay Valley to Patterdale in the Ullswater Valley. There are many excellent photo opportunities here. Don’t forget your camera! The pass offers great views over the Lakeland fells and Brothers Water, a small lake at the foot of the pass. Riders find this route quite addictive, routinely going back and forth between Newby Bridge and Penrith. It is a long ride that goes through the Lake District National Park.

You can continue your ride to the second part of this route or to the Lake District route (https://www.motocaching.net/fi/cache/view/id6382).
